But now the Daily Mail reports it's been told by a source close to the Saudi royal family Mr Khashoggi was taken from the consulate in a black Mercedes S-500 and a white minivan with four Saudi officials to Istanbul airport. She accused Saudi Arabia of "state terrorism" and called on the global community to take action against the kingdom.

A contributor to The Washington Post, Khashoggi has not been seen since Tuesday last week, when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, to collect papers for his upcoming wedding.

Over the past year Khashoggi used his platform as a Washington Post columnist to criticize the policies of Saudi Arabia's powerful young crown prince, from the war in Yemen to the arrest of women's rights advocates.

Turkish police were limited to footage from two street cameras that monitor the street outside the consulate after Saudi officials claimed that security cameras inside the consulate were not working at the time of last week's incident.

She expresses confidence in the Turkish government officials investigating and adds, "At this time, I implore President Trump and first lady Melania Trump to help shed light on Jamal's disappearance".

Kislakci also alleged, based on conversations with officials he did not name, that Khashoggi was made to "faint", then was dismembered.

He has said Saudi Arabia must prove its version of events but so far has stopped short of directly accusing the kingdom or laying the blame on powerful Crown Prince Mohammad Salman. It's unclear when such a search would take place.

Khashoggi had entered the consulate to get documents for his forthcoming marriage. The newspaper said the U.S. should demand answers from the Saudis. Turkish authorities believe he was murdered while he was at the consulate, something the Saudis vehemently deny.

"We can't let it happen".

Khashoggi said in the beginning of the recording that now he lives between Istanbul and Washington.

President Donald Trump says the United States is being "very tough" as it tries to find out what's happened to a Saudi writer who's been missing for a week after he went into a Saudi consulate in Turkey.

The two Turkish sources told Reuters that Turkish authorities believe Khashoggi was deliberately killed inside the consulate, a view echoed by one of Erdogan's advisers, Yasin Aktay, who is a friend of the Saudi journalist. Per the Times' source, the team's plan was "quick and complex", and the Saudi dissenter was dismembered "with a bone saw they brought for the goal".

On Wednesday, the Post published a column by Khashoggi's fiancée, Hatice Cengiz.

"Just spoke to Senators Bob Corker and Ben Cardin about our shared concerns regarding the whereabouts and treatment of Mr Jamal Khashoggi", Republican Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted Monday.
